About Lanny and Ann Hutchison

We are married with 2 children and 5 grandchildren. We are so blessed with good health, family, and friends and the opportunity to live our dream that neither of us could have imagined as kids.

We reside in Georgetown, Kentucky but spend the winter months in Florida. I retired from commercial banking and my wife is a retired freelance court reporter.

Lanny and Ann Hutchison purchased this condo in 2012

Why Lanny and Ann Hutchison chose Fort Walton Beach

My wife and I drove the entire coastline of Florida in January 2012 looking at areas where we may want to relocate and retire. After traveling the down the east coast and up the west we liked the beauty of the gulf coast and its proximity to Kentucky. The white sand beach, the emerald green water, and the feel of Waterscape was right for us. The amenities offered at Waterscape are unmatched and we can enjoy the condo with family and friends for years to come. And finally, what attracted us the most was the feeling that we could make this home. The rest is history!

What makes this condo unique

Enjoy amazing views from this 6th top floor unit while relaxing in the comforts of this well appointed and spacious condo. The moment you step inside this unit, you will sense the coastal feel from the paint colors to the furnishings and decor. A vacation is for relaxation, so experience a restful sleep on our premium memory foam mattresses.

Enjoy FREE and unlimited movies and TV shows streaming from Netflix and Amazon's Prime Instant Video to every Vizio LED LCD HDTV. A hotel type safe is provided to secure your valuables.

Waterscape is definitely oriented toward family enjoyment given the tropical oasis, the pools, and Lay-Z-River. Relax on the private white sand beach while enjoying the Gulf breeze and the emerald green water. And to make it more enjoyable, the rental includes complimentary beach service (2 beach chairs and one umbrella) for our guest during the period of Mar. 1 through Oct. 31.

Spring Breaking it for 35 years; We will return!

  • 5 of 5

It was a great place to stay! We have stayed throughout Gulf Shores, Orange, Destin, St. Mary's Beach and this was one of our favorites. The 2 bedrooms were large and had King beds, the Master Bathroom was huge. Bunk Bed alcove with TV. This is not what we expected with a beach condo. Complex was quiet. The elevator was near unit for convenience and we never heard it or people. The parking garage had security, plenty of carts to transport your luggage, ease of in and out. We walked to Waffle House and restaurant across the street. We were there over Spring Break, so the weather was cold and weather was bad. At night we watched movies as a family. Lots of things to do nearby bowling and shopping. Publix grocery (2-5 minutes away) and Wal-Mart (10 minutes away). Definitely use the GAS grill by the pool. Dining Room table sits 8 so no need to eat out all the time. We probably ate out one meal every other day. Stay away from driving east to Destin and Watercolor etc. unless you like traffic and averaging 5 miles per hour at best. Our group was my wife and myself, our 19 year old daughter and 3 of her college friends. If your child asks you to chaperone, definitely say yes!

The only negative is that a new building is being built next door, so if you are looking for a FULL view of the ocean, this is not for you.

Waterscapes

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed 2 times at this unit and have enjoyed this unit each time. The owners have installed some very attractive tile in the dining room and living room which really looks great. This unit always looks great and I think most important the owners are concerned about the unit being in good condition for the renters and is equally concerned about the renters. This is a great unit to rent! One really good thing is that it is close to the elevator but not too close and is also close to the trash shute.

A great family vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

This our second year in a row to stay here. There were several other families that we met that were return customers as well. The furnishings are nice and the property immaculate. We hope to have the opportunity to return again.
